After using several brokers with no success, I was referred to Lilyan to sell my property... her professionalism and mastery of the Manhattan real estate market provided instant results. - Recent Seller
She understood exactly what we were looking for. We loved her candor about which apartments would fare well, both as investments and as homes. And she guided us through the transaction process with ease. - Recent Buyer

Whether you're looking to maximize your real estate investment by selling your apartment, or want to find a wonderful new place to call home, Lilyan Bell would love to put her real estate expertise to work for you.

Born in Manhattan Lilyan grew up with a special affinity for the architecture of the City she loves and still calls her home. She studied painting and decorating and ultimately found that a career in real estate allowed her to combine a keen eye, a passion for design, and a genuine interest for meeting new people and helping them reach their goals. Besides, real estate is a natural for Lilyan whose family has a background in the business.

Lilyan has helped her clients buy and sell their homes all over Manhattan for the past ten years. She has a specialty in Co-ops and Condos, New Developments and conversions throughout Manhattan.

"Closing the sale and maximizing the clients position in all kinds of markets is the real challenge, and it's exactly where years of experience counts", she says. "I rely on my ability to see things from my clients perspective and to always provide outstanding service".

This client-driven approach has paid off. A large portion of Lilyan's business is referral based. Clients ranging from first time buyers to seasoned developers have come to enjoy Lilyan's unique combination of professionalism, never-ending energy and warm sense of humor.

When she's not working with clients or exploring new properties, Lilyan enjoys reading, painting, traveling and donating her time for volunteer work.
